    Description

    We would like to invite you to share a positive trace in our land here at El Maipo.
    We have a large garden, 2 dogs and and a lodge, which we occasionally rent out and which requires general maintenance.

    Above all, we are open to your creativity and talents, so any type of sustainable home improvements are welcome!
    Feel free to share your ideas with us to make this place even more special.

    We are vegetarians and living in Cajon del Maipo, an hour away from Santiago city. Our house is situated right in front of a river and mountains with lot of native trees, where you feel truly peaceful and relaxed.

    There are beautiful mountains and thermal waters within 2 hours from our house. You can also enjoy trekking, rafting, horse riding, climbing and bathing in rivers near by.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here in Maipo the environment is completely different to Santiago, despite being so close.
    Busses run every 15mins to Santiago so Workawayers can explore. Anytime I go to Santiago, Workawayers are welcome to travel also with me.
    Sharing meals and travel experiences is a very nice exchange.
    Please feel free to read my feedback as they tell an honest account of previous Workawayers experiences!
